Former Michigan State Spartans football player Jermaine Edmondson was allegedly slapped by Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green in East Lansing in July of 2016, and almost a year later, Edmondson is filing a lawsuit.

In the lawsuit, Edmondson cites that he still “wakes up crying” at night and has received numerous threats stemming from the incident.
“I still feel his hand on my jaw,” Edmondson said. “I think about what happened with Draymond every day.”
Green was arrested for misdemeanor assault and battery for the slap, only to be released after reaching a plea deal.
In Edmondson’s defense, wouldn’t we all fake PTSD with a potential million dollar payday on the horizon?
